Dr. Nikiforov was the exact sort of doctor I was hoping to see - kind, thorough, and highly attentive. I had no problem opening up to him and I trust the plan we arrived at for my treatment. I've been seeingpositive improvements already and look forward to my next meeting with him.

Dr. Nikiforov has amazing bedside manners and conducts a very thorough consultation. You will feel like you were cared for and all aspects of your medical care have been taken into consideration.

He is specified to tread bipolar disorders and is in my network, which is why I made an appointment to be connected to services. After speaking with me he told me I was “the real deal” and have a “complex presentation”and said they treat “lighter” things, even when he is listed as specializing in bipolar disorders. The process of the first time meeting is always very stressful, I was stressed out, and I continually vocalized my stress level and he seemed to disregard this for his own protection. I was made to feel like I was a liability when I am a human showing emotion trying to reach out and become connected to services and medication. I hate Zocdoc.

Dr. Niki is great. He understands my desire to not be on medications and is helpful in creating a plan to have as little of reliance on chemicals as possible. His staff are all so nice. I was a bit confusedon where the office is, feels more like an office building than a medical office.

Great experience! Dr. Nikiforov was very thorough, kind and thoughtful—I've already recommended him to friends and colleagues! He also offers evening appointment slots which makes scheduling very convenient. His office staff were alsoknowledgeable and made the admin tasks (like processing insurance) easy to understand and quick to take care of.

Dr Nikiforov is highly professional, experienced, with great bedside manner. He’s sensitive to the subtleties of depression, anxiety and bipolar illness. He does not pathologize or stigmatize people who are diagnosed, but rather sees thewhole person. As a professional in the field, I waded through many psychiatrists to find him and am relieved that he accepts my insurance. I can’t say enough positive things!
